Oops! I Didn’t Know We Couldn’t Talk About…

“Human Nature” was written in response to the public backlash involving Madonna’s previous album, Erotica, and her coffee table book, Sex. The song’s lyrics contain sarcastic backing vocals with Madonna asking rhetorical questions based on her real-life actions, such as “Did I say something wrong? Oops, I didn’t know I couldn’t talk about sex. I must have been crazy,” as well as the line “What was I thinking?” This is backed up by the repeated phrase “Express yourself, don’t repress yourself,” along with Madonna’s affirmation of having no regrets over showing off her “fantasies” and exclaiming that she is not “the one with the problem” and her detractors should “deal with it“, because it is “human nature”.
